Games, cats and communism. What else could you expect from this blog? Ossuary is a new commercial game by Gregory Avery-Weir, creator of Looming and indie classic The Majesty of Colors. I wonder, do game critics nowadays even remember how big games like The Majesty of Colors were? Do they remember how for a while, […]
Hi. I haven’t been updating much lately, mainly due to a) working really hard b) the continuing saga of Health Problems. I have some, Verena has some, and the cat has some too. It’s the kitty that’s really worrying us at the moment, since it’s barely been a month since her surgery and she has […]
I’m working on making lots of games for you people, which is why I don’t have enough time to write something interesting. So here’s a video of David Mitchell talking about linguistic authenticity and what happens when you scrutinize language too much.
The Greek government is trying very hard to silence these journalists, who have finally stopped doing what they’re told and are showing us what real television should be like. I’ve put the player behind a more tag because it autostarts.
Time for more links. Oneiropolis Compendium: The Moddhey Dhoo. I’m kind of sad the Compendium can’t get more attention; I think it’s some of the best writing I’ve ever done. I don’t think there’s a lot like it on the internet. Anyway, here’s a new entry. Scientists As Heroes: Greg Egan’s Teranesia. We’ve been a […]
So, my dental surgery didn’t go so well. I have a giant gaping wound in my mouth, a tooth with a hole in it that should have been fixed, no way of eating, trouble closing my mouth properly, and a surplus of anger, disappointment and despair. But what about you? Seriously, what about you? I […]
Today is Verena’s birthday, so I won’t be online much. Instead we will have some nice food and go to the zoo (even though it’s raining) and then to the cinema. It will be a wonderful day, rain or no rain. Yes. We will make it so, as Jean-Luc might say. You know what would […]
This is one of those posts with lots of links in them. I should do them more regularly, because I have interesting stuff to link to and not always enough time to write long, rambling philosophical posts about shrubbery. So, here we go. Linkies! The Indie Royale Lunar Bundle. Yes, it’s awesome that The Sea […]
Links! Rechts! Links! A lovely podcast called Dialogue Tree decided to talk to a strange hairy man about Greenlight, poverty and the future of gaming. He’s not very coherent, because he’s a caveman and he’s afraid of phones. Verena wrote about 2012, 2013, and her accident. Have you been keeping up with the Wanderers’ Tales? Greenlight? […]
Twitter is an evil thing; it makes you feel like you’ve been writing, but everything you write disappears down its near-unsearchable archives within minutes. I’ve been hard at work and I’ve got lots of things to announce in the next few days, but the blog has been entirely too quiet. So here are some links […]
